Butterfly Effect

By ian_w
Another picture I caught when back at my parents. I came across this butterfly sitting on this thistle. Only changes are unsharp mask.

Thanks all for your comments, much appreciated. I'm trying my best to improve.

The cheat tip for those interested - use a shutter speed of 100 and aperture of F16, then pop up the flash. Of course, requires that your close enough, or a good flash if you're further away with a long lens. Learnt this from my friend who is an FRPS Smile. Perhaps not cheating, but a technique of sorts.
